Exploring the boundaries of direct detection and characterization of labile isomers – a case study of copper(II)–dipeptide systems

Eszter Tóth, Nóra V. May, Antal Rockenbauer, Gábor Peintler and Béla Gyurcsik Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 8157-8166 ABSTRACT The investigation of the linkage isomers of biologically essential and kinetically labile metal complexes in aqueous solutions poses a challenge, as these microspecies cannot be separately studied. Therefore, derivatives are commonly used to initially Read More …

A novel 1,3,5-triaminocyclohexane-based tripodal ligand forms a unique tetra(pyrazolate)-bridged tricopper(II) core: solution equilibrium, structure and catecholase activity

Attila Szorcsik, Ferenc Matyuska, Attila Bényei, Nóra V. Nagy, Róbert K. Szilágyi and Tamás Gajda* Dalton Trans., 2016, 45, 14998-15012   ABSTRACT Copper(II) complexes of a polydentate tripodal ligand L × 3HCl (L = N,N’,N’’-tris(5-pyrazolylmethyl)-cis, cis-1,3,5-triaminocyclohexane) were characterized in both solution and solid states. Combined evaluation of potentiometric, UV-VIS, and EPR Read More …
